List #24 - Manuscripts & Archives

Our first list of the year contains thirty interesting archives and manuscripts, most of them freshly catalogued over the past two months.  Highlights include a fantastic and charming travelogue of a journey from England to the Amazon illustrated with photos and drawings; a lengthy manuscript describing travel through Africa in great detail; a manuscript map from Mexico; two western American diaries; a large archive of a Colorado mining family; antebellum business letters from New Orleans; a weird manuscript from the 1980s about tarot; an Oklahoma teenager’s high school scrapbook; and much more.  Enjoy!
